Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.20.09] post apocalyptic movie trailer news scifi horror action



In case you forgot already, Extinction: The G.M.O. Chronicles is an English language post-apocalyptic actioner coming from Germany. It sounded amazing when we reported on it a month ago and now it looks amazing that we're seeing the first footage in trailer form.

The beginning of the trailer is very reminiscent of another great European PA flick, The Dark Hour (review here). Survivors of a great plague are trapped in a military compound. The second half of the trailer is extremely different. It's high-flying mutant killing mayhem. Really, this movie looks like it has everything going for it. Drama, a good PA set-up, 28 Days style action and horror atmosphere.

A Retrovirus, which was conceived as a tool for industrial genetic engineering, has gotten out of control and is spreading rapidly. While it crosses all organisms within our ecological system completely indiscriminately (mixing plant with animal and humans) most plants prove more resistant because of their complex DNA. However, the simple genes of the plants lead humans to become grotesque mutations, in most cases even to death.

Within one week, 90% of mankind are either extinct or no longer human. However, a small fraction of the earth’s population remains immune to the virus and must survive in this new and constantly changing ecological system. Tom cellar is one the survivors and on an old military base in the Eifel he has entrenched himself. Further survivors come together and succeed in carving out a life in this new world. But the GMOs - the “genetically modified organisms” - constantly develop themselves further, and soon the fence of the base offers no more protection.


The movie was filmed on the Red One and looks totally gorgeous. Check out the very first trailer after the break!
